School of Science

I graduated from Temple University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2018. In the same year, I joined the Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) program at The University of Melbourne where I worked on direct numerical simulation (DNS) of rough-wall turbulent flows using high performance computing. I completed my degree in 2021, and later joined the PhD program at UNSW Canberra in 2022. As a part of UNSW Bushfire, I work on developing computational models to simulate ember storms in wildfires.
